    Weird and arcane state laws have long been a ripe subject for children’s humor books. This one takes a step forward from the rest of the pack by illustrating the bizarre forbidden activities (such as a donkey sleeping in a bathtub, illegal in Brooklyn!) and taking time out to describe actual facts about the legislative process. Youngsters are given information such as how a bill becomes a law and why we need laws.I found it interesting that one of the reasons given for our need for laws is “ [...]

    I can admire the pages where Linz inserted information about how crazy ideas can become law, but let's be honest. Anyone who picks up this book wants to read about the bizarro legislation that has been passed in this nation.Linz definitely choose laws that delivered on the weird-o-meter, and the illustrations added even more humor to the laws. But, I felt that the book was too brief. Given the weighty nature of the legal information Linz provided to give the book educational value, I thought mor [...]

    Silly trivia type nonfiction book about crazy/outdated laws that are found on the books of various towns in the United States. This book has many elements of other types of nonfiction as well including storybook nonfiction because of the big, beautiful illustrations accompanying the crazy laws on each page and survey nonfiction because the book also gives an overview of laws and how they are made and the importance of the branches of the government as they create each law.

    In this hysterical book, kids will be astounded at the absurdity of some laws! The information in this book coupled with the bright and colorful illustrations makes it an exciting and informative read. The book goes into detail about why we have crazy laws, our need for laws and how laws are passed. This would be a fabulous book to use when teaching about the legislative process! It is a must in any school library! EL-ESSENTIAL.Labels: Elementary, Essential, curriculum connection

    I read this book to my third graders after they discussed laws during social studies. This book was excellent to show the significance of state laws and how they impact the people. Students really enjoyed listening to this story and they laughed out loud at some of the absurd state laws. After reading this book, the class wrote a "pretend law" that they wish to implement at their school.

    I didn't think this book would be worthwhile, because I feel like I've heard and read plenty of silly laws. But I REALLY like how this book combines the silly laws with actual information about the history of laws and how stupid laws came into existence -- that's what bumps this book up to four stars. I could see my kids REALLY being into this.

    Did you know that in Memphis, TN It is illegal to drive while sleeping? Kathi Linz book, published in 2002, highlights some of the ridiculous laws that have been passed in U.S. history. They can be downright giggle inducing - in Idaho it is illegal to to fish for trout if you are seated on a giraffe's back. Was that a big problem in Idaho? Enjoy.

    What I love about this book is its balance. We chuckled at the crazy laws and the creative drawings, AND I appreciated the pages that explained how the crazy laws came about and why we have laws in the first place.

    Entertaining! This book definitely drew a laugh from the people around me. I had to pull it from the catalog today for low circulation purposes, but I still found it fun.

    Adorable book with important information. Even throws in a few funny laws to keep kids reading. Fun to use when teaching U.S. government.

    I would have been given a higher rating but I've heard all of these crazy laws before so the humor wasn't really there for me. In addition, I wasn't a fan of the illustrations.

    Wow there are a lot of LOONY laws! Such as: In Missouri, people must have a leash on their elephants! Boy, they are funny! You must read this book!
